Detect (Japanese: みきり All-Seeing) is a non-damaging Fighting-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM43 in Generation II.

Effect

Main article: Protect (move) → Effect

Detect protects the user from all effects of moves that target it during the turn it is used, including damage. If it or other protection moves are used consecutively, its success rate decreases.

If powered up by a Fightinium Z into Z-Detect, the user's evasion rises one stage.

Detect can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if move Taunt was used in the prior turn.

Detect's technical mechanics, including formulas, glitches, and exceptions, function identically to Protect in all generations.
